However, the home leg of their quarter-final tie due to be played on April 6 will go ahead in Manchester as planned, with the second leg set to be staged at Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park eight days later.
The second leg was set to be played in Manchester but was switched at short notice because the German government informed the Bundesliga club that they would have to quarantine upon their return.
There is still a possibility that the games between City and Dortmund could be moved if there is a change in policy from either the UK or German governments.
“It’s a privilege to be in the last-eight teams,” Guardiola said. “I didn’t see much [of Dortmund] but in this international break we will have a chance. They are a really good team.
“They were able to go through against Sevilla – who in knockout competitions are one of the strongest teams. They were able to beat them. Dortmund is tough but so would all of them be.
“We try to play a good first game and then good in the second one. If we do good games, we will go through, if they do good games, they will. There are no secrets other than that.”
With Guardiola’s side competing for trophies on four fronts, the opportunity to stay in England will be welcomed.
City face third-placed Leicester away in the Premier League on Saturday and will be able to train at the Etihad Campus rather than flying to Hungary on Monday and staying in a hotel ahead of kick-off.
